Rudolph Knows Santa!


I've been having fun making these little Rudolph faces for cards and tags, so I made one for the Unity FWF challenge today. I started with an old manila folder and cut it into pieces for tags. I embossed this one with a Sizzix ef, and sponged on vintage photo ink. I added a piece of ribbon, a couple snippets of dsp, and then Rudolph - cut from a SU! owl punch with googly eyes, and a big red shiny nose done with cardstock and glossy accents. I hand-drew the mouth with a brown marker. The antlers were done with a Quickutz easter chick die, and the sentiment is by Unity. I doubled this tag up with another tag on the back to make it sturdy and sent it to the grands to hang on their tree after signing and dating the back.

Christmas is sneaking up on us full speed now, so I'm thankful most everything I wanted to do is done.............well almost :) I still have some shopping to do :)

Have a wonderful day and thanks for popping in!!

These are just precious, Carol. I am still smiling about that sentiment. Wonderful idea to use this as an ornament for the tree. Something the grand kids will have forever. I'm glad you are almost done, but I am just starting. I just bought my first gift and sent out cards a few days ago and I have so much more to do. It's a good thing we have a small family so not too, too much to buy for, but I am waaaaay behind schedule. Unfortunately they are all getting store bought tags on there gits this year. If I had time, I would CASE yours, but maybe next year. Enjoy your day.

Oh, you are being so creative with the owl punch and now the Easter chick die for antlers. This is just the cutest and I'm betting the grands will be so happy for it to be on the tree.

I know Santa's cousin! My friend Ed has a bit of a Santa look about him so he claims to be Santa's cousin. Hee hee. Love this tag with the embossed background and bit of ribbon. Very woodsy.
